Dear lybrate-user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing one's mother is a major setback for any and everyone. It's a very difficult phase and getting out of it takes time as well as the support of other loved ones. I see the loss you have suffered has had an adverse impact on you, both physically and psychologically. Depression is an illness in which your appetite, as well as weight, lowers down for a lot of people. This is what is happening with you. Although rich food and multivitamins may help you recover some of your strength, you need to work on the emotions that you have been experiencing. You need the support of your family and friends in this difficult time. Being okay in front of them while being broken inside, you are living a dual life and it's affecting you. I would suggest choosing a family member or friend you are close to and sharing your feelings with him/her. You need to unburden yourself. Further, you need to work on a pre-decided activity schedule and try and stick to it as much as possible. Make sure you have multiple short periods of study in your schedule. Do not make the study periods longer than 30 minutes at a time. It would be difficult for you to sustain attention at present. Study for 30 min, take a break for 15 min, then again study for 30 min. In this manner, try and bring your attention to your study material. Try studying in a group with friends, write down in order to remember, or teach a friend to ensure you have learned the material. If you find yourself being distracted, read aloud in order to maintain your focus. If these symptoms persist, kindly see a clinical psychologist at the earliest.

I am 20 years old. I realize that remember power of my brain decreasing gradually. So what can I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brain power will not decrease unless you are not exercising it. You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate user. Nervousness is anxiety. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.

how to improve memory power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Memory is the ability of the brain to recall any stimulus that your five senses have registered in your daily routine, either consciously or unconsciously. There are long term and short term memories. Memory plays a very important role in learning, solving problems, speech, knowledge accumulation, imagination skills, conversations, composing etc. that will affect your confidence and performance. To recall quickly one would need to train the brain by exercises to actually practice the speed factor. For example, you may read some material from a page and practice recalling whatever you are able to remember within the shortest time. You must also learn to live stress-free, sleep well, eat well, exercise and use certain permutations to aid memory. There are several other exercises you may wish to use to improve your speed. Then there are certain exercises that will help you develop your memory: these are mental recalling-exercises. Do regular physical exercises, do crosswords, picture comparison, jigsaws, Sudoku, memory co-relation activities and skills. Recently, they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. Some left brain exercises will help too. Get in touch with me and I can send you those activities.

Practice Meditation and mindfulness breathing exercise. The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

Sir tell me about mental strengthening exercises ?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Sir tell me about mental strengthening exercises ?
Hello, Practice the following to get good and sharp memory: 1. If you are going to shop, write down the no. items to be purchased, but keep the list noted in your mind. Later, try to recall them and see how many items did you remember? Try to remembet the 10 digits mobile nos. In your mind. It's a brain exercise. 2. Listen to the soft music everyday or else can get indulge in singing and dancing both. Singing is a kind of de-stressing the worries! 3. Do calculations using your brains rather than pen them down on paper. 4. Learn how to cook a new cuisine. Cooking uses a number of senses: smell, touch, sight, and taste, which all involve different parts of the brain. 5. Keep on learning new things/ subjects. A rich vocabulary has been linked to a reduced risk for cognitive decline. 6. After returning home from visiting a new place, try to draw a map of the area; repeat this exercise each time you visit a new location. 7. Take up a new hobby that involves fine-motor skills, such as knitting, drawing, painting, assembling a puzzle, etc. 8. Learn a new sport. Start doing an athletic exercise that utilizes both mind and body, such as yoga, golf, or tennis. (Few yoga poses are there which increases your memory power, but for that learn and perform them under a qualified yoga-teacher).

Dear lybrate-user, penis size does not matter. During erection, it will increase in size due to increased blood flow. There is no need of any operation to increase its size. You need only sexual stimulation or imagery. If there is any abnormality in penis, it will be operated by a general surgeon. Both tobacco and drinks affect sexual life in the long run. Please plan to quit both as early as possible.

Smoking is a common problem but is easy to quit. A psychiatric assessment followed by treatment with medicines including nicotine replacement therapy alongwith varencline (champix) alongwith self help tips and counselling is all you need to leave smoking in 3 weeks. But perseverence with treatment is the key to permanent relief from thr problem. Get going. Best of luck.
